Historically billed as a “city home with a suburban backyard,” this 1950 single-family three bedroom, one bathroom home in the heart of Lakeshore Park is perfect for young families who crave the best of both worlds. Once part of the mid-century expansion of the city, this tranquil home is framed by tailored boxwoods, holly bushes and verdant jade, which line the walkway to the main entrance on the side. A formal entry with new parquet hardwood floors welcomes you into a light-filled living room grounded by a cozy wood-burning fireplace and beautifully detailed mantle. Stroll into the adjacent dining room with large north-facing double-paned windows that overlook Eucalyptus Drive and effortlessly flow into the centrally located eat-in kitchen. Entertain while you cook in this warm space flooded with natural light from a skylight and updated granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and new wood cabinetry. Ample storage closets line the hallway leading to the back of the house where the master bedroom connects to the granite-tiled bathroom via a walk-through vanity with original built-in cabinetry and closets. Two additional bedrooms can double as a home office or nursery with their quiet views over the backyard, which is a gardener’s delight with a prolific lemon tree, climbing roses, jasmine, and camelia and apple trees. A newly carpeted staircase leads you to a hard-to-come-by finished basement on the ground level, the ideal spot for a combined TV/kids’ game room and laundry room that spills out onto the backyard patio and conveniently connects to a large two-car garage.
